When I got on Skype tonight to talk to a family member, my webcam was showing me upside down.

How do I rotate the webcam image/video to be right side up?

Turn the notebook over, duh!

Which model camera do you have and on which notebook? Are you sure you have the correct driver installed?

Note there's a difference between "rotate" and "flip", but both can be done - some through user settings, some through registry entries. Perhaps this registry fix applies to you...(link)...

I'm still convinced that a small percentage of machines have the camera installed or manufactured upside down :)

Cool deal. That registry edit fixed it. Sorry I left out the system info.
